Milo had to decorate a turkey for school this year. We had fun raiding the craft supplies and going to town with this. Yah, they are the universal sign of thanksgiving around here, but doesn’t mean you have to eat them!
Instead of eating a turkey this year, consider adopting one!
We adopted Robin this year!
I went to a friend’s house for some collage-crafting one evening and this was the result. Ive never done a collage before, so I was a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities. We cut up alot of magazines, postcards, flyers, etc. and had some found objects (I used some string and a feather) – and just went to town. I was mostly drawn to colors with mine, so i was looking fof different colors and textures that pleased me. And I added some animal elements. Was hoping to add some type, but just didnt find anything that jumped at me. So this is the finished piece. When i showed it to milo he said “oh. thats wierd.” haha. Hoping there is some more collaging in my future! This was really fun. I think it would even be fun to do with the kids and see what they come up with!
This is a simple halloween project you can make using old toilet paper tubes.
You will need:
Toilet paper tubes
black construction paper
1. Fold the ends of your toilet paper tube in.
2. Paint your tubes black. Let dry.
3. Cut out bat shaped wings and glue on the back.
4. Glue on googly eyes.
5. Using hot glue, affix some string to the back of your bats and hang.
Taking some inspiration from pinterest, Milo and I made these valentines paper crafts during a case of cabin fever. I did the cutting, he did the gluing.
We went to a space themed party for milo’s friend, and we worked on this space ship together. Its now proudly hanging in milo’s room!
I have been seeing these on pinterest recently, and thought it would be perfect for milo’s upcoming birthday party. I used some paper scraps (mostly from paper sample books I had lying around for years) and cut them into red, yellow, blue and white strips. (thomas colors!) Then I sewed them together with my sewing machine. I think these are going to work great!
In honor of 100 days of blogging, here is a little card I made that says HOORAY when you open it up.
100 down, 266 more to go.
Milo told me this morning I needed to have princess leia* cupcakes for my birthday, and I think that he might be right. So here is the start to making that happen!
* According to Milo – since I’m a girl, my favorite is always princess leia and I get big presents like barbies.
